When your child isn’t feeling well, you need to know: Should you go in to see the doctor? Or is this something you can take care of at home? Sutter care centers provide pediatric advice nurses who can help you decide.
Sutter’s highly skilled pediatric advice nurses offer reassuring and expert guidance to help your child recover at home when possible, or see a doctor when needed. Our advice nurses are specially trained to help parents manage minor illnesses.
When in doubt, call the after-hours answering service at one of our pediatric centers. An advice nurse will return your call and answer your questions that same evening. If needed, the nurse will page the pediatrician on call to help assess your child’s symptoms or arrange treatment.
Our pediatric advice nurses are here to support you and your family at all times.
